How telehealth doctors’ service works at National Telemedicine Doctors
Using National Telemedicine Doctor’s telehealth platform, you can now consult an Australian Medical Board-certified doctor/GP/health practitioner in the comfort of our own home or office. Of course a face-to-face consultation with your regular health practitioner is the ideal consultation, however a consultation with National Telemedicine Doctors is an effective and convenient alternative, when a face-to-face consultation is not possible. During your consultation your National Telemedicine Doctor/ health practitioner will advise you if an in-person visit to a health practitioner is required.

Do I need a referral for a Specialist/Allied Health Practitioner?
Any General Practitioner at National Telemedicine Doctors can write a referral for you if you need a referral to a specialist/allied Health practitioner. You may need a referral to see a registered specialist or health practitioner – if you take services of a specialist/allied Health practitioner without a referral, Medicare will not cover any of your costs.
